    Stranger will suck you in, much like his bounty collection device, from the opening tutorial and you won't be able to put it down until the final boss fight and surprise ending.

    There's no doubt about it, Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD is punching well above its £9.99 price bracket. The production values coupled with over ten hours of quality gameplay mean the game would easily be worth £40 if stuck on the shelf of your local retailer.

    Brilliant. [Feb 2012, p.83]
  4. It's an enjoyable and surreal experience. Smart dialogue and pointed cultural comment make this no different from its Oddworld predecessors, and a very welcome addition to PSN.

    It's great to see Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath in high definition, since it's a game that deserves to be played. The dual gameplay works fine, as you can switch from third to first person perspective by just pressing the right analog stick. The way you get ammo is different from everything else, but will put you in both pleasant and unpleasant situations.
  6. An impressive revamp of a lost classic. [Feb 2012, p.86]

    Despite showing its age, Stranger's Wrath HD is still a wholly original, refreshing title when compared to many modern offerings.

The gameplay includes switchingThis is such an amazing game, the over all atmosphere and feel of the environment and characters is so unique. The gameplay includes switching between first person and third person, which really works. The characters and surroundings all have gorgeous, detailed textures, and honestly this game could easily pass as a PlayStation 3 game and not just an old Xbox remake. It's a real gem and you'll want to complete this game more than once in case you missed anything the first time around. Expand

    A game for last Gen that puts some of this Gen games to shame! A game that was just as great when I played in on Xbox, is still all IA game for last Gen that puts some of this Gen games to shame! A game that was just as great when I played in on Xbox, is still all I remember on the PS3! I highly recommend this game, if you enjoy platformers! There are some standard platforming issues that still plague it, such as camera issues that you tend to see in all platforming games, but should not keep you from buying this game and don't get in the way of the enjoyment of the game.
    The weapons are fun and quirky, using live critters as ammo. The graphics hold up very well on the PS3 and in fact make some of this Gen games look poor!
    If you didn't own a 360 or missed it when it came out, or just want to enjoy it again, then don't pass this one up. It is rare to find a PSN game worth its full price but this one is!
    This is a Don't Miss!
